Diablo IV Extract Aspect

How to Extract Aspects in Diablo IV

Extracting Aspects is an extremely valuable feature in Diablo IV. This allows for players to effectively obtain passive effects from Legendary items, to then reapply them to an item of their choice. In order to Extract Aspects in Diablo IV, players will need to speak to an Occultist and have a Legendary item that they would like to break down. The first Occultist can be found in Kyovashad, which is the first city you will access once you have beaten the Prologue. Unlocking the Occultist is relatively easy, and can be done extremely early on, which will give you access to extracting Aspects.

What makes this feature so valuable is the ability to apply any Extracted Aspect to any item of their choice, as mentioned above. This means that the item does not need to be a Legendary in order for you to apply said aspect. In fact, applying an Aspect to a Legendary item will overwrite the one currently applied to it. So it is best to save your Legendary items for their Aspects to be extracted and then applied to other pieces of equipment. Additionally, applying a Legendary Aspect extracted from an item can only be applied once. However, if you are applying an Aspect from a Codex of Power, you can imprint that Aspect onto any item indefinitely.

You can apply these aspects to Rare items to then make them Legendary items, for example. So don’t be afraid to Extract Aspects through your local Occultist, as this gives players a more accessible way to create builds of their choosing. However, making a Rare item a Legendary item will not increase it’s power. So ideally, finding a Rare item with a significantly higher power than your Legendary item, and then applying said Aspect is the best way to go.

Diablo IV is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox One.
